Mr. Haskell's Salvation army had a

audience and how to lcavo a convincing
and lasting impressiou. Ho spoke for over
an hour; picturing the evils of intemper
ance in their true and terriblo colors, and
proving himself to bo well versed in tho
horrors which attend the iutompcrato use of
rum. A song concluded tho entertain
ment for the evening, and tho audience was
dismissed with a benediction.
We were yesterday given, by a gentle
man from Blandville, the details of a horri
ble occurrence that took place there. A
Mr. E. W. Bugg lives in Blandville with a
wife and two children. They have iu their
employ a colored woman, who does the
washing and ironing. Whilo ironing, the
other day, she had occasion to leave tho
house, and leaving the children alone in the
room she closed the door and went. Mr.
Bugg had gone out in town, and Mrs. B.
was in another part of tho house. But hap
pening to open the kitchen door, a short
time after the colored woman had left, a sheet
of firo burst forth and she retreated with a
cry and badly scorched. When enterance was
at last effected the children were discovered
burnt to a.scrlsp. It is believed that the
colored woman left the hot-iron standing
on the cloth-covered ironing-board setting
it afire and causing the fearful conse
quence. Gen. Haskell was in Mound City yes
terday afternoon, and spoke to a large and
enthusiastic audience. His martial band
marched through the town, arousing the
peoplo from their stupor and causing them
to turn out from every nook and cranny.
Mr. Haskell delivered a fiery
address in his usual style aud
captured tho entire audience. Dan Rice
followed him with a few well chosen and
appropriate remarks. At the conclusion
the mayor of the city, who was chairman of
the meeting, put a motion to the house, in
viting Gen. Haskell to come again, which
was unanimously cairied.

states attorney, is not ostentacious and does
not make much noise in his canvass of the
county; but his work is nevertheless effect

the voters, and that is all that is necessary
to insure him success. Those who know
him will not fail to vote for him. His
character as a gentleman can not be im
peached, s nd his ability as a lawyer is ac
knowledged by all. His election is only
a question of a short time.
The result of the Maine election will
have a wholesome influence on the Indi

victory may be confidently expected in the
former and, if not a victory, at least large
gains in the latter state. As a result of

Democratic majority in November.

is to be hoped that our clubs will turn out
in full force and full uniform aud go up
there to contribute as much as possible
to the splendor and magnitude of the
demonstration. Speeches will bo made by

The meeting of the Woman's Christian
Temperance Union, held in the Reform hall
yesterday, was one of unusual interest. Mrs

chair, The temperance cook book was dis

The Young People's Temperance As

night and had a highly interesting pro
gramme prepared tor the occasion. Miss
Fannie Barclay was in the chair, and Miss
James presided at the organ. After read
ing the minutes, calling the roll, and trans
acting other preliminary business, the ex
ercises of the evening were opened. Miss
Jennie Wilson was first, with a select read
ing from the life of Tennyson ; she was fol
lowed by Miss L. Shepard, with a se
lect reading, from Lady Clare; next came a
quartette by Misses Phillis nnd Kent and
Messrs. Fry and Kent, and selections
from Betsy Bobbett, by
Miss Edith Martin. Mayor Thistle
wood here made a few very appropriate re
marks, which were well received. He laud
ed the young folks in their noble purposo
to induce tho young men ot tho city to join
them, Then followed a quartette by Miss
es Hattio McKee, and Annie Riley and
Messrs. Frank Motcalf nnd Ed Jenkins
Miss Mollio Motcalf played tho accompani
ment on tho organ. One of the most inter
esting featurcsof theovcuing's entertainment
was tho "question-box," which caused much
amusement to all present.
Wo this morning announce Mr. Richard
Fitzgerald as an independent caudidato tor
re-election to the office of coroner, and take
pleasure in doing so, since wo know that ho
has saved the county considerable money
during his term of office, and that he is the
choice of tho peoplo of tho county
Wo need not laud him for tho manner, in
which ho has filled the office and will but
repeat n few cases of tho many, which we
recall, in which lie has saved the county
a very snug little sum of money by the ex
ercise of liia usual good judgment. Tho
first case, we remember, is that of the death
of an old negro wood-sawer, who resided
on Thirty-fourth street and who died
suddenly and without any
apparent cause, Mr. Fitzgerald was called
by the relatives in whoso homo ho had died
but finding that he had came to his death
from natural causes held no inquest, as he
might have done, had he desired to swell
his pocket book; and the remains were hur
ried by tho relatives. Not very long
ago an aged colored woman died m tho
neighborhood of Seventeenth street while
a neighboring building was afire. Mr.
Fitzgerald found that death had been
caused by fright and old age, and therefore
did not hold an inquest. A negro, who had
been sick, died duriug the night in Scott's
saloon, while lying on a bench, but there
being no marks of violence on his person,
and it being ascertained that there was no
poison in his system, no inquest was held,
and Mr. Scott had the remains decently in
terred without any expense to the county.
Our readers all remember the death of old
Nancy Mack, who held forth on the
corner of Tenth and Commercial
and who died by taking a doso of poison.
Mr. F. personally investigated the matter,
found no one to blame but herself, and,
since her physician was willing to testify
that her death resulted from tho poison,
Mr. Fitzgerald held no inquest.
The dead body of a child was found iu the
commons up town. The coroner's jury made
an inquiry into the circumstances attending
the case; the coroner discovered the respon
sible parties and compelled them to give
the body decent burial, and thus saved the
county the expenses. Not long ago a col
ored man died in a house down town, The
occupants of the house refused to bury the
corpse; the overseer of the poor
did likewise, and tho coroner, finding
that the man had come to his death from
natural causes, saved the county
the expense ot an investigation
by jury and a burial. In all these
cases, and numerous others, Mr. Fitzgerald
has gone to the trouble of instituting per
sonal research into the circumstances and
causes of death and compelled tho rtspon
sible parties to bury the bodies, when he
might have summoned a jury; had them all
interred at the county's expense, and pocket
ed his legitruate fee. But this is not all
The coroner is allowed fifteen dollars for
every corpse buried under his direction. It
is left to him to make for himself whatever
he can out that allowance. Mr. Fitzgerald
has often charged the county only seven
and eight dollars for burials and jury fees;
because, having paid lor cotlins with his
own cash instead of with an order on the
county, he was enabled to get them so much
cheeper. Mr. Marshall, his opponent, says
that he can save the county money.
Any coroner can save the county money but
the question is will he do ho.
The fact that the white republican
leaders here are resorting to all manner ol
means, fair and unfair, to keep the colored
men in ignorance of the real iessues ot tho
campaign, and to hold them in political
bondage in there own ranks, proves that
they recognize in them a political power
that is absolutely necessary to their exis
tence as a party. They betray a fear that
is almost childish and that
often manifests itself in an ex
ceedingly ridiculous manner. They assume
a sort of proprietorship over the colored
voters, regardless of their intellectual status
by tho authority of which they dictate to
them how they shall vote; threaten them
with ex-coniniunicatiou from their party
and debar them from all participation in
their deliberations.if they retuso to swcur,or
affirm that they will vote a straight Re
publican ticket. They go further than
that. Knowing that the doctrines they
have engrafted upon their brain will not
bear the light of truth, they resort to means
that betray an assumption of authority over
them, that borders on tyranny, to keep him
from attending any Democratic
gathering which an ublo orator
and argufyer is to address.
We must bo permitted to protest against
such an assumption of authority by the
leaders of any political organization over
any class of voters. The Democrats, in this
city and county, while "contributing more
to the comforts ami subsistence of tho
colored voters than Republicans, have a!
ways rocoguized, their right to cast their
votes as they please. Although they might
have assumed the same authority over them
and resorted to the same system of coor
clou and intimidation, which
their political opponents liavo practiced,

they have refrained from doing so. The
colored voters in Cairo,as all through tin
south, know that they do and must depen i
chiefly upon their Democratic friends, for
that which keeps body and sou!
together and that which con
tributes to tho comforts of their
daily life. Here in Cairo the great major
ity of the colored men receive employment
from Democrats. They go to the Demo
cratic merchant, carpenter, mason, builder,
blacksmith, miller, miner, shipper and of
ficial; are employed by them; receive their
money, and in the evening attend some Re
publican meeting aud applaud wildly while
some such representative of Republicanism
as John Reeve, Robarts or Douglas, hurls
epithets against their employers; calls them
scoundrels, rebels and denounces them as
unworthy of their respect and confidence.
The Democrats do not n.-k for the vote
of the colored men of Cairo.
They ask tunc only to stop aud consider;
to think for himself; to become worthy ot
of American citizenship by breaking asun
der the bonds placed upon him by un.icru
pious politicians, and after having given
both sides a fair hearing from now to the
end of the campaign, vote according to
the dictates, not of selfcoustituted, self-interested
political masters, but according to
their ewn dear consciences.

It is the first time in the history of the
country that crimes so atrocious have been
laid to the charge of a presidential candi
date. Nothing but the desperation of
chronic office holding and a wolfish hunger i
for spoil could attract a following to such a
leader. Some of the advocates of the Chi
cago nominee are sublimely silent upon
these points in his his'ory.while others treat
them, in the language of Artemus Ward, as

its duty to state that ladies' hats will be worn
on the head during tlie coming season. Our
many readers will be glad to know this.
Heretofore they fiavo been worn anywhere,
but upon that particular spot on the neck,
on the face, on the back, on the ears, on the
wing, on the go. And now they arc to be
worn on the head I delightful! Come
to think of it we always
cherished an idea, anyway,
that the head was a place upon which to
wear n hat, and that the great army of
Cairo's handsome women, young nnd old,
would eventually awake to a happy realiza
tion of the fact. Ot course, it will look a
little odd at first to observe all the girls
and married women going 'round with
their bats stuck upon their heads, but wo
expect to got use to it by-and-by. For their
part women think it very funny to see a
man trying to make his bat fit a tobacco

such things aro very common.

Twas just behind '.he woodshed,
One glorious summer-day ;
Far o'er the lulls the sinking sun
Pursued its westward way.
Aud in my lone seclusion,
Safely removed al'ar
From ail of earth's confusion,
1 smoked my tlrst cigar.
Ah! bright the boyish faiicies
Wrapped in the wreaths of blue;
My eyes grew dim, my head wih light,
The Woodshed round nie flew.
Dark eight closed in around me,
Rayless without a star;
Grim death I thought had found me,
And spoiled my liast cigar.
Ah : pallid was my noble brow,
The waning light was late;
My startled mother cried, in tear,
".My child, what have you ate"
I heard my father's smothered laugh
It seemed so strange and far
I knew he knew I knew lie kuew
I'd su'-jked my first cigar.
